EXTENDED: Mother Courage and her Children – ON THE RADIO!

Mother Courage and her Children

Family tragedy, cutthroat economics, and power that wants nothing but more power. Spice it with classic vaudeville, German comedians, and American Screwball films of the 1930s and ’40s. The play defies genre and acting style, and it changes course on a dime.

Brecht like you’ve never heard it!

This is the first production of the “Sunday Afternoon Salon”. A group of Irondale actors, directors, and designers with an accumulated 183 years of working, playing, or just hanging out together who meet each Sunday afternoon to do just that.

The Radio Mother Courage is an audio play that you can enjoy from home. After purchasing a ticket, you will receive an email 24 hours before your scheduled performance time and with the link and your individual code. The link will remain available to you for 48 hours after the performance time. You can only use your individual code 3 times. The play is presented in three parts – listen to the whole show in one evening, or spread them out.

We highly recommend that you use earphones or ear pods to get the optimal audio experience as you listen to this play.


Directed by Jim Niesen. Translated by John Willet.

What they Say

To play together we must learn to speak each other’s language. And by playing together we begin to break doI just saw Irondale’s production of Brecht’s Galileo. Riveting theater in an amazing space! A terrific show- science and facts under fire- stellar acting and great live music!wn insecurities we may have that come from not understanding. We can actually teach each other in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere—an atmosphere of joy, play and healthy competition.
